Twerkin’ like Miley not your style this Halloween? Go the alternative route by channeling your inner teenage witchy goth as Lorde, the rising star on the pop scene. Lorde has got a thing for black mesh body-con dresses, almost black makeup, and the kind of jewelry that’s likely been cleansed by some new agey priestess. Memorize the lyrics to “Royals” or “Tennis Court,” wear your hair in long waves or plaited into a crown braid (as above) following this tutorial, and you’ll be a dead ringer for next year’s big Grammy winner (I predict, anyway). Deets on the items above, after the jump! Keep reading »
Okay, so I’ve never actually seen an episode of “Bob’s Burgers,” but apparently it’s popular and the character of Tina Belcher sounds like my spirit animal. At 14 years old, she has a voracious sex drive and a uniboob, and her favorite things are horses, rainbows, zombies, and writing erotic fiction. Like I said, spirit animal. Something tells me I will be watching “Bob’s Burgers” tonight. Oh, anyway, the other great thing about Tina is that she makes for possibly the easiest Halloween costume ever — chances are you can source most of this stuff from your closet. But if not, we’ve figured it out for you. Just don’t forget to practice your moaning. Keep reading »
There are so many options for Halloween costumes and so many of them seem to be awful. This year, we’ll be giving awards out to the best of the worst the holiday has to offer.
There are sexy/edible costumes and then there are terrifying/edible costumes. Topping the list of bizarre food costumes this year is this “Teen Midget Apple Costume.” Where shall we begin? Let’s start with the un-PC name. We can only assume that this piece of fruit is meant to be worn by either teens or little people — even though they vary wildly in size. Not that it matters, one look at this apple’s face will send even the most un-scareable trick ‘or treater running for the hills. Seriously, this is much more terrifying than “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” [$35.99 Ebay]
Halloween is not a holiday known for love, but stay with us for a sec. The canon of horror movies is rife with potentially dateable and definitely single men, who could all just use some love, or at least a nice dinner out. If online dating and the daily drudge of searching for available and attractive men that won’t kill you in your sleep is getting you down, then change the game! All men are horror shows, anyway, right? Why not take that to heart and include these dudes in your list? Let’s take a look at these seven horror movie villains, and see just how dateable they really are.
If you pay any attention at all to the fashion industry or have picked up a fashion magazine in the last year, chances are good you at least recognize this face: Cara Delevigne is arguably the hottest up-and-coming model in years, thanks to her trademark heavy brows, wacky facial expressions, edgy street style and, uh, history of dropping bags of cocaine in public. And dressing up as Cara for Halloween turns out to be totally easy. Snag her (exact, I believe) Bart Simpson two-piece ensemble on eBay, plop on a red beanie and combat boots, sling a personalized backpack over your shoulder and make as many weird faces are you can think of all night (here are a few to inspire you). Oh yeah, and fill a small baggy with powdered sugar to act as your faux cocaine — seriously, don’t be all method and use the real stuff. As Cara knows all too well, that spells trouble. Full deets for this costume after the jump! Keep reading »
